Question about Samsung Digimax A400 Digital Camera
I just got a samsung a400 camera ,I only used it a few times i went to turn it on and it shuts off by itself.I changed the batteries in it and it is still doing it.I am wondering if any one else has had this problem.This is my first digital camera and wondering if it was a wise choice to buy a samsung.
Does your camera work with regular AA alkaline batteries ? I'm having a similar problem, my camera won't work with 1.2V NiMH rechargeables, but it works fine with 1.5V regular AA alkaline batteries.

Are you certain the batteries are good and fully charged. They do wear out eventually. Hopefully it's not a jammed lens causing the problem. Does the display come up with an error number or maybe even "lens error" before switching off? If it does it will mean a trip to the camera doctor. How far are you actually getting with the switch on? Try switching to view picture instead of the shoot mode. This consumes less power and if you can see the last picture you took on the LCD or even a flash of it before closedown I'd put my money on bad batteries. Make sure the battery ends are clean and the camera battery contacts aren't corroded or dirty. It's sometimes amazing how trouble a little dirt can cause. BMW
